You have been living with so much mental clutter for so long that it has become a habit but, living a life that continuously requires you to churn thoughts one after another is sad, and you do have a way out of this dreaded lifestyle. Read till the end to know how!!

There are ways which if slowly made a part of your lifestyle, can help you feel more at peace mentally which will reflect in the way you perceive your daily life thereafter.

Imagine that feeling when you don’t have thoughts nagging you, haunting you at all times and you can be free of their claws. Sounds peaceful right??

So here’s how you can go about your way to mental declutter in 2021-

Declutter your physical surrounding- This is kind of a no-brainer here, as seeing less physical clutter makes you feel calmer mentally. If I ask you to imagine a space where you would like to spend most of your time, you most definitely won’t imagine a place with clutter, right?? Clear spaces help you feel organized mentally. A simple decluttering routine will help you focus on tasks with a better headspace and you will feel more productive. Before you start to work on something that needs absolute focus make sure to clear the clutter out of that space and notice the difference.


Brain Dump- This is kind of underrated with immense benefits. Do not confuse brain dumping with to-do lists, as while brain dumping helps you sort all kinds of thoughts orbiting your brain, unlike to-do lists which help you sort the tasks to be done in a day. You will yourself realize what all comes out on the paper once you start writing, all the thoughts, conscious, subconscious slowly keep coming through and your head starts to feel lighter with every thought that exits. You hardly realize what all you keep on storing inside your head and once it's all on paper or a digital notepad the space is free and decluttered. A good brain dump session prevents your brain from fogging with undone tasks, pending to-dos,

missed appointments and helps you sort through them one at a time. Try this method and thank me later.
